Why do they need to break new ground though? They've got a massive fanbase which appreciates these releases still, sell loads of tickets for shows in which the new stuff doesn't mean a nosedive in quality. From what I've understood from AC/DC die hards is that, unlike with Bon Jovi, no one particularly hates or dislikes the new releases. They're not losing any fans with them.

Meanwhile Bon Jovi have changed direction at least 5 times in the past 20 years while the last decade has been nothing but the same release over and over and over again. Unless you're a die hard aware of the supposed "Vision" our leader has it's all been the same stuff, just gradually worse. They've alienated more fans than they've gained all because they're "trying to break new ground".

I'd much rather Bon Jovi would've kept releasing Crush, Bounce or Have A Nice Day all over again rather than the drivel they released after. Neither album is particularly great but it's still miles better than The Circle, What About Now, This House Is Not For Sale or 2020.

Salaam Aleikum,
